The PRSB6.8C is a transient voltage suppressor array (TVS) designed to protect applications such as wireless telecommunication devices, SMART phones and portable electronics. The PRSB6.8C is available in a bidirectional configuration with a working voltage of 4.7V and a minimum breakdown voltage of 5.7V. This device is rated for 10 Watt peak pulse power using the 10/1000µs waveform and 50 Watts 8/20µs, which is sufficient protection for tertiary type lightning threats at key interface locations.
The PRSB6.8C is also suited to protect data lines against ESD and EFT. This device meets the IEC 61000-4-2 and IEC 61000-4 requirements. At higher operating frequencies or faster edge rates, insertion loss and signal integrity are a major concern. This device in conjunction with passive components integrated into a TVS/filter network can be used for EMI/RFI protection.
